Cupcake, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!

Recently we got a book out at the library called Tina Cocolina. This book is about a cupcake who is trying to find her topping. I must admit that it is not well written, nor is the content particularly good, but for some reason it captured Bunny’s imagination! She has thought about all the details of this book. She has even drawn a picture of Tina and made up a story with both of them in it! 🙂

So I told her that she could earn a cupcake badge! She was SO excited about it. The goals to earn the badge were that she needed to read a book (or I read it to her), make cupcakes, and write a report. She did all of these things really well and I think that there was alot of good learning that happened! I was happy about that because this was a test to see if my idea for next years school will work. Here is what we did for our cupcake badge:

Bunny did almost all of the work of making cupcakes alone!

After that we learned about the 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup, and the 1/3 cup!
I also taught her about a teaspoon and tablespoon!

We also experimented with the different measures in some beans!

She frosted them by herself too. This was tricky for her. I think I see a work in this! 🙂

Here is the finished cupcake, topping and all!
 The frosting was a strawberry buttercream and was amazing!

And here is her report!
I am really proud of her! I think she did a great job, and now we are both really excited to start our year with this new plan! I cant wait share it with you all, but you will have to wait a day or two till I get it all together! Stay tuned!
